Personalty, I would not call a QB scramble a run play. Seems a bit dishonest. Sure, they will go down as a run play, but a run was not the intent.
The 1st possession in the 2nd Quarter had no run plays:
1st play - incomplete pass
2nd play - QB scramble for 2 yards.
3rd play - QB sack.
The 2nd possesion in the 3rd Quarter also had no run plays:
1st play - QB scramble for 1 yard
2nd play - incomplete pass
3rd play - incomplete pass.
The Biggest difference between qtrs 1-3 and 4 were
moving the pocket
way less predictable
more run lanes
Now you seem to be just throwing words out there and hope they stick.
Tempo - Tempo did not change much throughout the game.
Wilson running - Wilson had only 2 "rushes" (actually scrambles) that were of any significance. One for 11 yards and one for 16 yards. While they did extend the drive, they are not anything that made a huge shift in the game.
Moving the pocket - Huh??? The pocket was moving the whole game because of breakdown in blocking.
non-standard patterns - What the heck is this even? You will have to provide an example of these "non-standard patterns".
way less predictable - again....Huh????
more running lanes - and again.....HUH????
qtr 1-3 on a lease
4th qtr off the lease
thats not just about Wilson but the offense as whole
In other words back to same old same old. play close to the vest keep it close and then try to win in the end.
Not sure why you think RW was on a leash the 1st half. What exactly is a "leash"? RW was 11/19 in the 1st half and 9/17 in the 2nd half. Considering the 2 big scrambles were pass plays, it appears that RW had as many pass plays called in the 2nd half as the 1st half.
I'm not one to put all success or failure on RW's shoulders, but his accuracy and "some" decision makings do appear to be not as stellar as what we saw early in the season. This could be because of some minor injury RW is playing through, better defensive coverage, bad offensive line performance, or even bad luck. In any case, it seems like the execution by the offense as a whole appears to be off a little. It only takes a failure on the part of one players to cause an offense to stall on their drives. A coach can call a perfect game and have the best QB, but without all 11 players executing the play as they are suppose their skill does not matter.
